The Talos Principle is coming

As the release date of The Talos Principle approaches, I’ll be posting reviews and other links of interest here. I am, however, also preparing the release of A Postcard From Afthonia, which is ready and just being set up at Humble, and The Council of Crows, which I’d love to release before Christmas (but I’m […]

A delicious selection for all internet-compatible humans: EFF: On 6/5, 65 Things We Know About NSA Surveillance That We Didn’t Know a Year Ago Konstantinos “Gnome” Dimopoulos is doing one of those Patreon thingies. He’s been quietly, humbly writing about indie games for nearly a decade, getting the word out about hundreds of interesting games […]

I saw this the other day, and figured it was probably more important than identity politics.

Authentic Pronunciation

I’m working on making lots of games for you people, which is why I don’t have enough time to write something interesting. So here’s a video of David Mitchell talking about linguistic authenticity and what happens when you scrutinize language too much.

Live ERT feed (Greek)

The Greek government is trying very hard to silence these journalists, who have finally stopped doing what they’re told and are showing us what real television should be like. I’ve put the player behind a more tag because it autostarts.

Time for more links. Oneiropolis Compendium: The Moddhey Dhoo. I’m kind of sad the Compendium can’t get more attention; I think it’s some of the best writing I’ve ever done. I don’t think there’s a lot like it on the internet. Anyway, here’s a new entry. Scientists As Heroes: Greg Egan’s Teranesia. We’ve been a […]

How are you?

So, my dental surgery didn’t go so well. I have a giant gaping wound in my mouth, a tooth with a hole in it that should have been fixed, no way of eating, trouble closing my mouth properly, and a surplus of anger, disappointment and despair. But what about you? Seriously, what about you? I […]
